Car hire - Most areas in Denmark are easily accessible by car, which makes touring Denmark on 4 wheels a very popular option.

Copenhagen

Places to visit in Denmark

Tivoli Amusement Park: first opened on the August 15th 1843, Tivoli is the second oldest running amusement park in the world and an absolute must for visitors to the city of Copenhagen. With magnificent architecture, beautiful gardens and nostalgic rides, there's truly something for everyone.

Mols Bjerge National Park: a rugged landscape of meadows, marshes, wood and heathland, Mols Bjerge is the perfect spot for hikers and nature lovers.

Elsinore: a bustling port city first established in the 15th century, Elsinore is also home to the world's most famous castle, Kronorg, which was the setting for Shakespeare's Hamlet. If you plan to visit the city, try to time your stay so that you can attend the performance of the play that is held annually in the city.

Odense: famous as being the childhood home town of the legendary story teller, Hans Christian Anderson, Odense contains many attractions including Denmark's ordest art museum, an old Viking castle, and Funen Village, a museum which provides an insight into what life was like in the village as Anderson was growing up there.

Food in Denmark

Smorrebrod: a traditional decorated open sandwich, with origins tracing back to the late 19th century. Often made with rye bread, topped with herring, pickles and herbs and served with snaps.

Danish hot dogs: the Danish are extremely proud of their hot dogs and we don't blame them! Fried onions, pickles and remoulade (a sweet yellow sauce sometimes flavoured with curry, chopped pickles or piccalilli)

Danish pastries: yes, the best place to taste Denmark's most famous export is in the country itself! After sampling a the baked delights here, you won't be able to eat a shop bought pastry back home without feeling disatisfied...

Currency

Like most Scandinavian countries, Denmark is notoriously expense for just about everything. There's a hefty 25% tax on all goods, making for eye-wateringly high prices.

Though part of the EU, the Danish use the Danish Krone, which you'll see rendered as DKK. If you want to avoid extortionate exchange rates and have the security of having your Krone delivered straight to your door, then check out our travel money option. Partnered with Fair FX, we can give you the most Krone for your hard-earned English pound and it's completely hassle-free! Winner, winner — right?

Just to give you a flavour of how much things cost over in Denmark, a cup of coffee will set you back 30 DKK; a pint of beer, 70 DKK; a three-course meal for two at a mid-range restaurant, 500 DKK.

Danish expressions and greetings

Even though most people in Scandinavia speak perfect English, knowing a few phrases in the local language is a simple trick that can help you win over the locals! Don't be the classic Brit abroad — learn a couple of these quick phrases and you'll be mistaken for a local in no time!

Tak - thank you

Goddag (goo-day) - hello

Godmorgen (gol-mowen) - good morning

Farvel (fa-vel) - goodbye

Undskyld mig (uncool my) - excuse me
